Re: “Feedback 12/27

What is missing in Ms Ryans flinty analysis is that homeless vets AND unemployment AND undocumented immigrants is that all three are the effects of corporate salaries and shareholder profit concerns. There are enough jobs for everyone if CEOs would lop one zero off their yearly salaries. Furthermore, unless Ms Ryan would like to earn a dollar an hour and live in a trailer without heat and pick her own produce for dinner, I suggest for her to be somewhat thankful to the people who do.

Re: “It's time for Medicare for All

Oh the irony that your story on Medicare for All coincided with the House vote on May 4 on Trumpcare. There's extra money for pre-existing conditions, because the rates got jacked up. There's extra money in for your HSA, because you chose not to buy groceries, save for college, or pay the mortgage this month. There's less burden on NY state for Medicaid, because your county taxes just went up to pay for it. Trump and the GOP want to play a shell game with us, and hope we're not watching.

If being a snowflake means equal opportunity for everyone, a blizzard is in the forecast.

Re: “A ton of other things you can be doing during Trump's inauguration

I will be volunteering the whole day on Friday. I figure I can do something good on that day.

Re: “Lovely Warren’s right about red-light cameras

As a (white, suburban) person who has received not one but TWO of these tickets, it has been for squeaking through an intersection on a red light. Just by virtue of technical minutiae these lights should be removed. How about we do a study where people get tickets for roaring through red lights and put the cameras there? And I mean ALL of Monroe county? The fees from that alone would cover a full time DMV in the city.

Re: “You're getting warmer

"The system would place a tariff on (products from countries) without a carbon fee.." Maybe this is the way to convince incoming lawmakers of doing something in terms of climate change...hit em in the pocketbook.

Re: “GOP punishes city residents, workers for political gain

All the more reason to have competitive races for county legislature seats...and go out and vote!
